Aldi never ceases to amaze us with their wacky offerings.

They seem to always know we all want even before we even know it ourselves.

And each week we end up finding ourselves back down the infamous Specialbuys aisle stocking up whatever obscure but somehow necessary toy, gadget or edible that they decide to offer us.

And once again, the budget supermarket has got customers in a tizzy with its newest Specialbuys arrival – and it’s one that’s perfect to add to the kids’ (or your own) Christmas lists.

The budget retailer has brought back their giant sloth cuddly toy.
